I'm going to be getting a cat. Well, I'm getting a cat for my handicapped uncle who probably doesn't have long to live, has trouble walking far etc. Obviously I'm going to be the one mostly taking care of the animal, visiting every day and such. One of the problems though might be my allergies... I get a bit sneezy and itchy from cats.
Anything important I should know about them? I've never had an animal before. Any ways to deal with allergies easily?
ETA: before the LJ Police get me - yes, he wants a cat. Yes, I'm going to keep it after he dies (because I want one myself).
